EcoCash for PSL matches

HARARE - The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) said fans will soon be able to use EcoCash to pay for their entry fee to watch football matches across the country.

At the moment, Zimbabwe is experiencing a severe cash shortage with most people sleeping outside banks in order to access their cash the following morning.

Bond notes, which were introduced to alleviate the problem, are also scarce in the market and football matches have also not been spared.

The PSL will have a trial of the cashless payment system during the league match between Chicken Inn and Dynamos tomorrow at Barbourfields Stadium.

Fans will be able to gain access to the stadium using EcoCash at gates 4, 6, 9, 15 and 25.

The move comes after the successful introduction of point of sale machines (POS) as a payment option earlier this season.

The PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele said: “We have heeded the calls from football fans to adopt cashless payment methods and we are pleased to bring them the convenience of accessing football matches without having to wait in queues to withdraw money.

“The POS system proved to be a success and it is something we are going to continue with as we look for ways to enable easy access to the stadium and improve attendance owing to the current cash shortages.”
